Yeah, it can be pretty tedious, especially working with hair. If some of the pink still shows up on the hair, you can try using the sponge tool (it will slightly desaturate whatever you paint over). Alternatively, you can create a new layer, select a brown tone from the hair, and use the paint brush tool (on the blank new layer) to go over the parts of hair that have pink, or got too desaturated. I'd put the brush on a low opacity (20%ish) so that the changes are subtle. And if it doesn't look good, you can always erase what's on that layer easily.Helpful 1 4 June 2012
Much better composition in the revision! Yay! =)4 June 2012
As for changing the color: what if you tried to go for grey instead of navy blue? There are already grey tones in the picture, and her hair, which should make changing the color easier to deal with, even though the hair poses a problem. Grey would also mean that the focus stays on her face and the scenery, rather than the shirt taking all the attention with bright color. If you took the photo in RAW you could just open up the RAW dialogue and desaturate the pink color scale to achieve this. If not, you can use the color select tool to do the same thing. It's not perfect, so I recommend creating a second copy layer to make your changes. If it accidentally changes parts of the hair in the process, you can create a layer mask for the edited version, and show the original hair in the original/bottom layer by painting over the mask. If you don't know how to work with masks, I highly suggest you learn soon, as it will solve so many post processing problems for you!
Hope that's not too confusing =D You can always send me an e-mail if you want longer/more specific photoshop instructions!
